I'm a Newbie

Glad to be here. I am a 56 year old female who suffers from chronic pain from a calcified, fractured coccyx. I received the injury when I was 15 and the pain began at 50. The coccyx is in the shape of an L so every time I sit I am in pain. I have had 4 nerve blocks, none of which have taken. My Doctor is now considering a Spinal Cord Stimulation. I have never seen my specific problem addressed in any writings. Don't know if there is anyone out there like me.
